It's American Football Day; Cancer Patient Brings Luck To The Game
November 5th is American Football Day! We sure do love this sport. Meet the boy who inspires an entire team to do their best.
Joey was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of five and has been in remission for the past 9 years. Thanks to the efforts of a not-for-profit called Friends of Jaclyn, Joey was “adopted" by the Stony Brook University Football Team as their good luck charm. For four and a half years, he has attended practices, rushed the field before kick off, and has attended 4 league championships, all of which were won by Stony Brook. Whether it's good luck or not, Joey has proved to be an invaluable member of the team and the family they have formed over the years.
If this story doesn't make you love the game, I don't know what will.
